    Nice people and decent benefits.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Central New Mexico Community College part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Students are mostly wonderful, flexibility of teaching schedule, other instructors are great, nice but unpaid long breaks, PTO and sick leave

    Cons

    CNM has virtually no regard for adjunct faculty or veteran status when assigning classes. No communication or transparency between admin and faculty.

    Advice to Management

    Respect and look out for the welfare of your adjunct faculty. You can't function w/o us!

    I have been working at Central New Mexico Community College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    CNM can be a great place to work. The benefits are better than average, we receive excellent vacation packages, they offer a pretty good work/life balance and the working conditions are nicer than many private companies.

    Cons

    The New Mexico budget shortfall has crippled CNM's ability to pay competitive wages for non-executives. Attempts to cut the budget have left several key positions open for several months despite promises that they will be filled.

    Advice to Management

    CNM cannot continue to pay sub-standard wages and expect to recruit quality talent. As the veteran staff retire, it will become harder to replace their talent with such low pay.

    I worked at Central New Mexico Community College full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    supportive team environment, diverse student body, really good benefits package as you might expect.

    Cons

    Oddly political at odd times, location of main campus is sometimes challenging due to theft rates in area.

    Advice to Management

    The only thing that couldve been immediately better was to change the workday to 9-5 instead of 8-5. other than that it was great.

    I worked at Central New Mexico Community College part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great colleagues and students. Flexible work hours. Many campuses, so there are options. Deans are generally good and willing to back up instructors when students are "less than desirable" in their behavior.

    Cons

    Each semester it's a crap shoot as to whether or not one will work, how many classes one will be assigned, if they will be cancelled or given to full-timers at the last minute, and how much one will make. It isn't a way to make a livable wage.
    The school is unclear on their benefits and what it takes to qualify and what it costs each semester. They increased the number of students per class without an increase in salary, reduced our contact hours per class, and then started requiring more classes per semester to qualify for benefits. It used to be a full load was 4 classes and 112 students; now it's 5 classes and 150 students." For no extra pay/compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make the faculty and staff suffer because of accounting errors on HR's part. Listen to your adjunct faculty and the union reps.

    Pros

    Great place to work. It was too bad that the state revenues fell due to the drop in oil and gas revenues and a lot of us on contract had to find other work

    Cons

    Need to offer more opportunities to interact with the main campus

    Advice to Management

    Hold more input sessions to let employees have a voice.

    The schools spends millions on technology and very little on helping the faculty to use it.

    Pros

    The time spent teaching adult students was rewarding. The pay scale for NM was good. There is a lot of time off. Overall it was a great job.

    Cons

    Some semesters schedules could be difficult. Many high dollar decisions were much more about politics and not about student or teachers needs.

    Advice to Management

    Create more shared decision making between IT and Instruction for computer programs that are purchased.
